Just signed and mailed off a contract with a publisher, so I don’t have to worry about upfront editing and cover art costs and details in any future books. I’m also working on altering TSCB to conventional prose novel format, to be released when done. I de-published from Amazon so they could upload it and take it from here.
I’ll add more details when it’s available again and the publisher makes an official announcement.
It’s a strange world I live in. Very strange, but oddly nice.
UPDATE: Looks like the new product link is http://www.amazon.com/Stars-Came-Back-Rolf-Nelson-ebook/dp/B00J3F8Q0O . Comments haven’t followed it over just yet, and the cover is a bit different. The conventional prose format cover will be totally different.
UPDATE II: Castalia House. Comments have migrated over. Vox talks about it here.
Got a lot of ideas about the next book kicking around inside the cranium. What sounds most appealing: Continue reading Next book
I’m curious, to any and all who drop by here: How did you find the book? Link in from somewhere else, browsing the Amazon top (whatever) list (which one?), an Amazon recommendation, or something else? As a first time author, I’m new to all this, too, so any and all feedback about how you came across the book or what specifically struck you as most interesting is welcome. I don’t do FB or Twitter or the rest because I hate datamining, so the only thing I care about your post is what you say in your post, not all the background metadata.
For those that are curious, I am working on another book, but it might not be the one you are expecting. I could easily outline a dozen books that tie into this one, but I plan on writing books that will stand alone just fine, but will enhance each other.
If a physical paper book of this story was in print, how many would want it, and what would be a fair price? Bear in mind that this is a large book, on par with a mid-size Harry Potter story in word-count.
Lots of possible ideas for spinoff works from this story. I’m working on a komenagen story now. I jokingly said I could write a soft-core similar to 50 shades based on Payton’s adventure, calling it “The company I keep.” Not really my style, but it might be popular. A story with Allonia’s background might be interesting. One following a group that Taj picks up to emigrate to terraform a world might be good. Any other ideas?
